Re: Rowing

No more crew after this year. Vogel statement:

Today marks one of the most difficult days in GW Athletics’ history. This morning, I notified the coaches and student-athletes from your program that we are discontinuing varsity sports sponsorship for the Men’s Rowing program at the conclusion of the 2020-21 academic year.

As a member of the alumni community, please know that I recognize how much you and your teammates dedicated yourselves to build your program. Your program will remain a valued part of our history. You may know that GW has added several sports and increased our number of student-athletes over the past few years. We value the range of our offerings, but we are currently sponsoring more programs than anyone else in the Atlantic 10 Conference. The number of programs has stretched our resources, placing limits on our support across all programs and creating growing financial concerns. With the new and growing financial impact of COVID-19, our decision to move forward was one of necessity.

We do intend to continue to support the program this coming year. Additionally, we will support those students who are on athletic scholarship and choose to remain at GW through their graduation.

President LeBlanc will share a larger message with the entire GW Community later today, but as a member of our GW Athletics Alumni community, I wanted you to hear it from me first. Along with the President’s message, there is a comprehensive FAQ document that will be shared.

Know that our entire coaching staff, administrators and staff are grieving today for those impacted. Our current students and all of our Men’s Rowing alumni will always be a part of our GW Athletics’ history.

Director of Athletics
